DreamWorks Animation Unveils ‘Dawn of the Croods’ Trailer

Produced in Korea at EMation, NE4U and Dong Woo Animation for Netflix, new 2D-animated series is executive produced by Brendan Hay of ‘The Simpsons’ and ‘Robot Chicken’ fame.

History's favorite first family is back in the all-new original family sitcom Dawn of the Croods from DreamWorks Animation premiering worldwide on Netflix on December 24.

Based on the 2013 CG-animated feature The Croods, directed by Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders, the new 2D-animated series joins Netflix originals such as Turbo F.A.S.T., Dragons: Race to the Edge, Adventures of Puss in Boots and The New Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show. This new show deals with modern-day problems -- such as discovering school, a sugar rush or an eye roll -- occurring in history for the first time ever.

Here’s the synopsis:

Eep, Grug, Thunk, Ugga, Sandy and Gran are back and funnier than ever in this all-new family sitcom. Follow everyone's favorite family as they meet new friends, outrun new creatures and encounter “firsts” the world has never seen -- such as school, slumber parties, hiccups and elections. The Croods are discovering them all.
